Swimalates: Pilates for Swimmers

with June Quick,
Licensed Physical Therapist, Certified Athletic Trainer, Certified Pilates Instructor, and Stanford Swimming consultant

In this video, June Quick shares this unique on-land program for swimmers inspired by the program in use by the successful Stanford Women's Swimming team. The goal is to assist a swimmer in establishing posture, line, and balance on land that can be transferred into the pool. Quick's program intertwines Pilates exercises to strengthen the core and shoulder girdle, yoga exercises to increase flexibility and lung capacity, and resisted stretching exercises to accommodate the use of the extremities while maintaining posture, line, and balance of the core. Quick begins this video with a brief anatomy review of the body core and shoulder muscle areas that the program targets: Areas crucial to swimmers in maintaining a proper posture, line, and balance in the water. She continues with the actual program starting with Pilates on the long roll, followed by Resisted Stretching, & finally some Yoga mixed in with Swim-specific Pilates exercises with a focus on upper and lower body core development, core and extremity flexibility, and shoulder girdle strength. The program is sure to teach swimmers how to move from "the inside/out"; all limb movement starts with the core first, a perfect complement to the concepts of posture, line, and balance that is the theme of Championship-Winning Swimming!

Swimmer's Shoulder: Prehab and Rehab

with June Quick,
Licensed Physical Therapist, Certified Athletic Trainer, Certified Pilates Instructor, & Stanford Swimming Consultant

Statistics show that up to 80% of swimmers will experience shoulder injury/problems (a.k.a. "swimmer's shoulder") at some time in their career. June Quick has worked with swimmers at all levels from age-groupers to Olympic Gold medallists and as a consultant with Stanford swimming for 15 years. Through her experience in the sport and in her profession, June has developed a complete system incorporating strength and flexibility exercises using surgical tubing, body weight, and a rope that work all areas of the shoulder while keeping a "core" connection. The goal is shoulder stabilization that will help a swimmer become/stay injury-free. Quick introduces this topic with a fundamental overview of shoulder anatomy enhanced with basic illustrations. Next, incorporating the use of surgical tubing, Quick explains and teaches five different shoulder strengthening exercises followed by several variations of Pilates exercises that use body position to strengthen the body core as well as stabilizing the shoulder. The final segment incorporates rope stretches. In all, 10 different active and/or resisted stretches are taught with instruction and demonstration.
